Reported by At-Tahaawee and Al-Isma’eelee and Al-Baihaqee with an

 Reported by Al-Baihaqee with an authentic chain of narration and Abu
Dawood with a sound chain of narration. Imaam Ibn Al-Qayyim said in Zaad
Al-Ma’aad: “It is not reported on the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) that he made ‘Itikaaf while
not fasting. Rather, ‘Aa’ishah RAA said: ‘There is no ‘Itikaaf except with
fasting.’ And furthermore, Allaah did not mention ‘Itikaaf except with the
fast. And the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) did not do it unless he was fasting. So
the correct opinion is in the evidence, which the majority of the scholars
adhere to: that fasting is a condition for ‘Itikaaf. And this is the
opinion that Shaikh-ul-Islaam Abul-‘Abbaas Ibn Tamiyyah favored.” And he
adds to this that it is not legislated in the Religion that one who goes out to
the masjid for prayer or other than that is supposed to make an intention for
the amount of time he will spend in ‘Itikaaf. This is what
Shaikh-ul-Islaam clarified in his Ikhtiyaaraat.
